A runaway kitten that jumped into a delivery van in Turkey woke up from her cat nap 2,000 miles away in Dartford.

Six-week-old Yonda emerged from the nine-day adventure very timid and frightened and has now been taken into quarantine.

Heather McCann from Cats Protection said “We’re now appealing to the public for funds to help pay the remainder of Yonda’s quarantine fees and the costs involved in looking after her while we seek to find her a loving new home.”
